The NASCAR Cup Series’ will run the first leg of this weekend’s Drydene 311 on Saturday at 4:10 p.m. ET at Dover International Speedway. It will air on NBCS. DraftKings has DFS contests available for the race, and we break down some ideal picks and sleepers below. You can set your lineup here.

Best Bets

Martin Truex Jr. ($11,000)

Truex’s odds to win on DraftKings Sportsbook are +400. He only trails the favorite Kevin Harvick (+350). Truex has been extremely consistent lately with five straight third place finishes. He’s also cracked the top five in four of his last five starts at Dover.

Chase Elliott ($10,000)

Elliott is fresh off a win at at Daytona and has six top five finishes at Dover in eight career starts. He has the third best odds to win on DraftKings Sportsbook at +550, but is sixth most expensive driver. The pole sitter has a good chance to place inside the top five and lead a ton of laps.

Sleeper Picks

Clint Bowyer ($7,800)

Bowyer got his first top 10 finish in six races at Daytona but has seen his price drop $1,000. While this race will be on the oval, the momentum from his las outing could carry over to a track where he’s notched four top 10 finishes in his last five starts.

Jimmie Johnson ($8,000)

Johnson has 11 career wins at Dover and last won there in June of 2017. A fourth place finish at Daytona in his last race could be a building block for the veteran. He’s been solid when it comes to getting DKFP lately despite only having one top 10 finish in his last 10 starts.
